This class is for newer theater students or those wishing a general refresher. Strong second-grade level reading skills are needed to participate in Fundamentals. Students work with three teachers and cover three core disciplines: acting, singing & dancing.
Acting: Explore basic acting skills through focused exercises and theater games. These activities reinforce listening and reaction skills and interaction between actors. Students learn the groundwork of stage performance and the language of theater study.
Musical Theater: In this introduction to singing and dancing in the style of musical theater, students learn basic and commonly used techniques in vocal performance. Skills include proper warm-up, breath support and vocal production, basic sight reading, direction and memorization. Students work with a choreographer to develop movement sequences and dance to accompany vocal work.
Parents are required to attend a 30-minute orientation session in the Main Stage theater on the first day of classes. This orientation will introduce parents and students to the teaching staff, let parents and students know about the program's expectations, and provide information about special events throughout the semester.
